Alan Wake 2 was announced during The Game Awards 2021.

Alan Wake 2 has finally been announced and we are looking ahead to what should be an exciting sequel to the hugely popular original.

The game was initially teased inside the credits of Alan Wake: Remastered - providing the gaming community hints that Remedy Entertainment are bringing the series back in 2022, with players greeted with the message that said: "Alan Wake's journey through the night will continue."

The first game was originally released back in 2010 and revolved around the story of Wake and his wife's mysterious appearance near the fictional town of Bright Falls, Washington.

In recent years, an Alan Wake DLC was made available in the game Control, another title under the Remedy umbrella, with the two games taking place in the same universe as part of what is known as an "Altered World Event."
